Trust Members' Area

                  

About the Council of Governors

The driving force of any Foundation Trust is the active involvement of the membership.

The Council of Governors meets every three months at the hospital. All reasonable expenses incurred as a result of carrying out Council duties (such as travel expenses) are reimbursed by the Trust, although there is no salary associated with the post of Governor. The public members of the Governors have a real opportunity to ensure that Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust continues in the 21st century as a hospital of which the people of Tameside and Glossop can be proud, the hospital of choice for local people.

If we are lucky enough to receive a lot of interest and nominations for each area then an election will take place. This will involve all the other members within the area casting a postal vote based on a short summary about each of the individuals seeking to be elected to the Foundation Trust's Council of Governors. This election will be organised by UK Engage on behalf of the Trust to ensure the process is fair and open. Clearly, the nomination forms to be found within the information packs need to be completed and returned to the Returning Officer. If only one person comes forward for nomination, they will be elected unopposed.

What is a Foundation Trust?

On the 1st September 2016 Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust became Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust. 

Foundation Trusts are still part of the NHS and subject to rigorous inspections like the rest of the NHS, but patients, staff and local residents have a greater say in how those standards are met and developed. This allows Foundation Trusts to tailor their services to best meet the needs of the local community.

Foundation Trusts still have a Trust Board which consists of Executive and Non-Executive Directors. These Directors are legally responsible for the running of the Trust, and consult with Governors and Members on issues of strategic importance.

We believe that Foundation Trust status brings real benefits for our patients, our staff and the local community.

Tameside & Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust is a newly formed Integrated Care Organisation formed on the 1st September 2016. The Trust is using the Foundation Trust licence of the former Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust which was established as a Foundation Trust on February 1st 2008.

What does it mean to be a Foundation Trust?

  • The Trust has responsibility for determining our own destiny – which means we are able to make faster decisions and have greater flexibility to provide services to meet local needs
  • The Trust has stronger links into our communities – which means greater accountability to our patients, local people and partner organisations
  • The Trust has increased organisational development opportunities – which means we can grow and develop as an organisation, and rise to the challenge of providing high quality local services
  • The Trust is able to deliver service improvement more quickly – which includes taking advantage of new ways to raise funds and access capital
  • The Trust has greater financial freedom – ability to plan and manage our finances with increased clarity, certainty and stability

What do members do?

One of the most important features of an NHS Foundation Trust is the establishment of a Council of members.

Our members are the driving force behind out Foundation Trust and help us to move forward. We already have one of the highest membership of any Foundation Trust in Greater Manchester, with almost 25,000 public members and 3,617 staff members. However, their contribution has proved invaluable and we always welcome more members.

Your feedback is really important to us - it's how we find out what we are doing right and what you'd like to see happen in the future.

There are no fees or obligations and you can be as active as you like – from receiving literature, to attending meetings and voting in Governor elections or even standing as a Governor yourself.

The members of our Foundation Trust will:

  • help make the Trust more accountable to local people, and better able to listen to local views
  • vote in the election of people to sit on and represent you on the Council of Governors
  • be able to stand for election to the Council of Governors

What are the benefits of being a member?

As a member of our Foundation Trust you will be able to help shape the future of Tameside and Glossop IC NHS FT.

As a member you will receive:

  • entitlement to join NHS discount scheme website, which provides great deals, savings, helplines, offers and more. http://www.nhsdiscounts.com/en
  • Please check out latest news section to find out more about what's happening in your local health and care organisation 
  • Invitation to meetings
